I am preying they dump the stupid heat generator, its not road relevant, I have worked on them before and they are awful things and OEM's are not remotley interested in them.

I would like to see them use the front wheels to generate and deploy energy, and just leave the rear axle for the engine to deal with, much like the front of an LMP1

Otherwise the engine can just be a simple V6 single or twin turbo, with electronic boost assist, thats quite road relevant at the moment. TJI miust stay as thats highly road relevant to make gasoline engines less polluting and more fuel efficient.

but I am adamant the heat generator is an utter waste of time and money

Why can't you pull into a "Charge Station", have your battery slotted out, then have another put into your car and then off you go, 2 min and you are done, just like a normal fuel stop today?
You can already do that with electric forklifts now.

Drive to the lift station, do the equivalent of spreading the fork's legs, disconnect everything, haul away the old pack & slide in a new one.

It can take between 30 minutes and an hour, with a couple of blokes or blokettes around to do the spanner twirling, the power disconnect/reconnect, and the required health & safety mob with fire equipment and other stuff in case of emergency.

And some time to start up the fresh battery and have it talk to the electronics (control unit, GPS etc) on the forklift.

It would be nice if it were as quick as slotting a fresh set of AAA batteries into the teev remote. We aren't there just yet.

And it would arguably make for quite an uninteresting pitstop if they did...
